sermon on the mount-salt of the earth

You are the salt of the earth.

In the English language, that phrase speaks of the common people who are honest and hard working.

I think that could be one interpretation of what the Lord Jesus is saying.

Jesus then warns, if the salt has lost its savor, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.

May we be mindful every day that we need to be simple, honest and hard working people. Otherwise, we will be legitimately despised and talked about by the world around us.
